Summer Pasta Salad

Possible last cookbook club at 14234??  We sold our house - YAY - so it was weird to think this could be the last cookbook at my house!  We made up a yummy summer salad; it was so tasty!!  I would add in some grape tomatoes....hmmm yummy!!!
8oz dried bow tie and/or wagon wheel pasta 
2 medium avocados, halved, seeded, peeled, and coarsely chopped
6 slices bacon, crisp cooked, drained, and crumbled
2/3 cup chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup finely shredded Pecorino Romano cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl - combine the avocados, bacon, basil, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, pepper, and salt.  Add the hot pasta and toss to combine.  Transfer to a serving bowl.  Sprinkle with cheese.
